Recipe: Spanish garlic soup

Soups with aromatic herbs
May 06, 2009

Garlic Soup is a tipical Spanish dish: it's often prepared with chorizo or other spanish sausages, but I choose to prepare this vegetarian version.

Frozen chiliesThis soup is supposed to be hot, but I haven't fresh peppers yet, so I used frozen chilies from last year.

I used red chili peppers, hot but not too much (Mexican Red Cayenne, Rocotillo...), minced, wrapped in tinfoil (or fridge paper) and then frozen. I called them single dose chilies, because they're very handly and ready to be used.

Serves two:
2 clove garlic
100g breadcrumbs
2 ripe tomatoes
1-2 tsp. minced red chili peppers
1 egg
2 sprigs of parsley
2 tbsp olive oil
500ml water

Fry the minced garlic in a large pan with olive oil 1 minute. Add the breadcrumbs and cook 5 minutes, stirring often.
Peel the tomatoes and cut them into small cubes. Add the tomatoes, water and chili peppers to the pan. Cook 20 minutes low heat.
Beat the egg and pour in the pan, stirring until it begins to set. Add minced parsley and serve hot, with corn bread.
